QLF Dry Cow 20+ Mag is designed to balance the nutritional needs whilst making the management of dry cows and close up rations easier. The product offers high levels of protein along with Magnesium Chloride and can be fed in a TMR, can be poured on or fed from free access lick feeders. QLF’s Dry Cow 20+ Mag may be effective by:
- Increasing ration palatability and intake, thus the cow actually eats the required kilograms of straw.
- Improving fibre digestibility, making better use of the straw which the cow has eaten.
- Reducing ration separation and ration sorting.
- Distributing nutrients and additives (minerals) uniformly.

QLF Dry Cow 20+Mag offers an optimal level of magnesium for ruminants on spring/autumn grass, where staggers has been a concern, and for dry cows/heifers prior to calving.
Enhanced sugars in this product also contribute to magnesium utilisation. As Magnesium is not stored in the body, nutrient requirements must be met in an immediate way.
Intakes should average 1-2 litres per head/day. This product may be fed ad lib in an approved lick feeder, in a TMR/home mix, as a top dress, or poured onto forages and feeds. The product has been shown to be very effective in dry cow programmes.
